Full facemask- dry eyes

Full facemask- dry eyes
I have been using the memory foam f20 over the last month.prior month, I was using the same Mask without the foam option. I really like the full face mask but I get dry eyes alot. I live in an area that causes alot of dry eye conditions. I think the mask is making it worse. Any tips to help me?

RE: Full facemask- dry eyes
Macheta,
I have a dry eyes problem also. Eye Dr. has me use a warm pad before bed and then apply a Gel type eye drop, usually need to reapply the drops when I wake up in the middle of the night. The warm pad thing looks like a mask but has bead like things in them that I put in the microwave for a few seconds, I wear it for ten or so minutes before settling in for the night. The theory is the warmth will loosen the oil in the glands next to the eye that helps keep the eye moist. If you are having some air blow by the seal at the top and into your eyes that is a mask fit issue.
All of this helps me some, not perfect but I have a dry eye problem.

I had this problem as well ... finally figured out there was a small leak where the bridge of my nose curved into my cheek.
